If your kids are beginning to question the existence of Santa, then it’s time you start thinking of ways to ensure them that he rally exists. But how do you do that when he doesn’t really exist? Luckily there are some ideas here from Popsugar.com that can help you.
One of the biggest things we forget most of the time is wrapping paper. Kids will notice and question why Santa’s presents are wrapped in the same exact paper mommy keeps in the closet. Be sure to buy special wrapping paper and hide it! This way you can wrap Santa’s gifts in that paper and no one will be the wiser. Also if you don’t think kids will notice that the “love Mom and Dad” signatures on the tags looks just like Santa’s signature, your wrong. Try writing Santa’s gift tags with your non – dominate hand, or have a friend do it for you.
One thing I remember as a kid is why would Santa deliver toys that need to be put together? I thought that’s what elves were for. Go the extra mile on the toys that need assembly and put them together before placing them under the tree. It’s also a good idea to hide gifts before the big morning like your life depends on it. Don’t just shove them under the bed, or on the top shelf of the closet. Get creative in your hiding places because trust me – kids will look and they will find.
In this day and age with computers, your life just got a little easier. Make the illusion of Santa’s arrival really hit home by tracking his flight path online. Use North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Santa Tracker . It’s a guaranteed way to seal the secret.
